Streamer “crokonikeosrs” has seemingly been banned from Twitch after calling the art of a female content creator a “crime against God” during a January broadcast, among other insults.

While Twitch is known as a haven for unexpected content, the broadcast of one streamer on the platform quickly went viral on January 8, thanks to their incredibly negative comments regarding another broadcaster.

Streamer “crokonikeosrs” and a friend were watching the stream of fellow content creator “moonlightandlace,” but they weren’t in it for entertainment — instead, they used their platform as a means to make hurtful statements about her and her art.

“It’s like some school shooter s**t,” one of the streamers can be heard saying as moonlightandlace held up a notepad drawing. “That’s what that is now. School shooter s**t. …I’ll give her a follow, though, because I just wanna keep coming back to check on her stupid a**.”

Moonlight went on to showcase a sketch from “The Mandalorian,” which drew a high-pitched laugh from one of the broadcasters.

“I drew that s**t when I was in primary school, dude,” one commented. “I don’t like abusing people, I just like s**t-talking them. Like this chick. Have you seen her picture? …she drew this. She has the audacity to draw this s**t, and then show it on stream as her artwork. That’s a f**king crime against God, dude.”

While moonlight has yet to comment on the horrid remarks from the Twitch bullies, viewers have come out in droves to support her, denouncing the streamers’ hateful words.

“Trash humans can’t come up with anything better to do than bash someone for ‘content,’” one user wrote. “Here’s to hoping this loser quits streaming cause twitch really doesn’t need any more of these people.”

Others claimed to have reported the channel, which has since been taken down at the time of writing.

This wouldn’t be the first time a streamer has been banned after making hurtful comments about another broadcaster’s art, either: in May 2019, Twitch artist “ Kuno” and his girlfriend found themselves suspended after openly mocking a fellow artist’s work during a broadcast.

While bullies still exist, it’s comforting to know that viewers will band together to make sure such behavior doesn’t go unpunished.

Tyler1 amazes Smash Ultimate pros after battling MkLeo on Twitch

Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp faced off against the number one Smash Ultimate player, Leonardo ‘MkLeo’ López Pérez, in what was meant to be a fun T1 crossover. Instead, the League challenger got to work, trash talking and smashing about the best in the world.

Tyler1 doesn’t do anything by halves. He’s loud, and has the personality to match. He revs up his Twitch stream to hundreds of thousands of adoring fans daily, who are there not for the gameplay, but for the Tyler1 ride.

Those who caught the streamer’s November 27 cast were certainly in for a ride. The League of Legends star collided with Smash Ultimate’s biggest name, MkLeo.

It makes sense a crossover between the two was inevitable ⁠— with both being part of prestigious organization T1 ⁠— but the action exceeded everyone’s expectations. Of course, Tyler1 got trounced by MkLeo. However, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t able to get a stock or two, and the League streamer let the Smash pro know about it.

“Leo, I don’t think you’re that good dude. How bad are Smash players if I almost f**king beat you,” Tyler1 said, while struggling to get more than half a stock on average every game.

MkLeo didn’t take it lying down though. “You’re so bad that you’re really good at the same time,” he hit back with.

Tyler1 kept frying the big fish though. Next on his stop of trash talk was Leffen. “Leffen is a scrawny p*ssy a** b*tch. Kid sucks at f**king Smash. Rages at a children’s game, f**king loser,” he said, which had MkLeo in stitches. He had enough slaptalk for Samsora and other pros too.

Fans were also treated to some iconic Tyler1 reactions, and there was none bigger than the streamer’s bewilderment at Arsene, Joker’s Persona. “What the hell is that? Did you just enter a cheat code, bud? Are you cheating?”

After it was all said and done though, the crossover did what it intended to do. It united the League of Legends and Smash communities, and entertained everyone in the crossover that no one really wanted, but they definitely enjoyed.

“Playing and chilling with [Tyler1] really made me realize what it is to be a streamer and a gamer. Loved his personality and him as a person, looking forward to more collaborations like these,” MkLeo said on Twitter.

“T1 playing smash with Leo was actually so godlike. Makes me actually want to play league more and see if I can get to further than Masters,” Samsora also added on Twitter.

Tyler1 kept his side of the story nice and quaint though: “It was pretty fun.”
